(Scroll down for video) A man freaked out after finding a dead mouse inside his empty cup of coffee he bought at McDonald’s.
Ron Morais of Fredericton, Canada, said that he made the shocking discovery after finishing the cup of coffee he bought on his way to work.
For the last sip, Morais took off the plastic lid. That is when he found the dead mouse. Morais showed the cup and mouse to some of his coworkers.
Morais said that the idea of drinking a whole cup of coffee with a mouse in it made him feel sick.
Jason Patuano, communications manager of McDonald’s, issued a corporate statement, emphasizing the seriousness of the incident.
“We take complaints involving cleanliness and sanitation very seriously,” the statement read.
“Upon learning of this situation, the local franchisee immediately began an investigation, including working closely with the local public health authority that conducted an inspection on Tuesday, after receiving a complaint,” the statement continued.
McDonald’s Canada also said that a pest control company found no evidence of any rodent problem in the building. “I wonder how the mouse got into the coffee cup,” Morais said.
He also wants a guarantee that this does not happen to anyone else.
